Tottenham fans believe Roberto Firmino should have had his goal disallowed

Tottenham Hotspur fans believe that VAR should have ruled out Liverpool’s last-minute winner scored by Roberto Firmino.

Mohamed Salah opened the scoring for the hosts through a deflected shot in the 26th minute. Son Heung-min equalised 7 minutes later before Steven Bergwijn came within an inch of giving Spurs the lead.

The game seemed to fizzle out in the last 20 minutes, but there was enough time for Roberto Firmino to head in a 90th-minute winner from an Andy Robertson corner.

However, Tottenham fans sensed something was amiss. A Tottenham player seemed to go down a few seconds before the Brazilian leapt to head the ball in.

Spurs fans were left incensed after they spotted a ‘foul’ on Eric Dier by Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson.

Henderson seemed to trip Dier as he made his run into the 6-yard box. The goal was checked by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) but was allowed to stand after a check was complete.

The incident did not escape the eye of the Spurs fans, who took to Twitter to question the legitimacy of Firmino’s winner.

VAR was on hand to deny Liverpool a penalty when Mohamed Salah forced Eric Dier’s arm towards the ball. The 4th referee was also involved when Son Heung-min’s equaliser was checked for offside.

However, Spurs fans feel that VAR should have been on hand to rule out Liverpool’s last-minute winner.

The result sees Tottenham move down to second, allowing the Reds to leapfrog them in the table. Spurs now trail the new league leaders by 3 points.
